The Shah-Namah of Fardusi
Low Price Publications/D.K. Publishers Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8175365072; Softcover; New; 
The book is the most extensive rendering into English couplets of the great Epic Shah Namah in Persian language by the immortal poet, Fardusi.The plan adopted has been that of taking the introduction, with a portion of the history of the earliest kings of Persia in the mythical and pre-historic ages, and following these with prose translations of the reigns of the best-known monarchs and with various celebrated episodes, such as that of the fight of the hero Rustam and his son Suhrab, and from those epochs down to that of Yazdagird., about A.H. 411 (A.D. 1020), during the period of the history of Persia spanning more than 3500 years. Between these there has been inserted an epitome of the history of the intervening periods in prose, so that the whole conveys a full impression of the entire poem.This is the most faithful rendering in its adherence to the original. The uncompromising fidelity and the method followed by the translator will surely enable the readers to master the peculiarities and intricacies of the original through the medium of translation.

Manual of Mythology: Greek and Romen, Norse, and old German, Hindoo and Egyptian Mythology
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1987; 8172680880; Hardcover; New; New; 
This manual is among the best known complete class-books on Mythology. It is complete in that it contains all the vitalities of the treasured mythologies of the Greeks, the Romans, the Indians, the Norse, the old Germans and the Egyptians, down the ages. In this revised and thoroughly re-written account by the celebrated scholar of Greek, Roman and Indian antiquities at the British Museum in the latter half of the nineteenth century, images, legends and myths have been portrayed through no less than 45 plates that retain their value even to this day. Studies of Mythologies of different cultures are many, treating the various civilizations in their own perspectives. But an account of the entire literature on mythologies of the east and west, that could be relied on, is rare. And, Murray account is indeed a rare one, to be consulted by every serious student of mythologies or any of their aspects. Printed Pages: 382. 112103

Outer Space: Weapons, Diplomacy and Security
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789381904947; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The world faces numerous security concerns-from nuclear proliferation to terrorism to climate change-that cannot be resolved by one nation alone. And unilateral military force will not defeat transnational threats. In this era of global challenges, one issue requires urgent attention that is out of this world the militarization of space. In Outer Space -Weapons, Diplomacy and Security, leading Russian experts analyze the space weapons programs of world powers. As countries try to avoid a catastrophic new arms race in space, the book details the political, military, technical and legal problems confronting negotiators attempting to prevent or at least control-the weaponization of space.Printed Pages: 144. 104275

The Fight for Influence: Russia in Central Asia
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789383649211; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Since attaining independence, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan have forged their own paths—building relationships with outside powers and throwing off the last vestiges of Soviet domination. But in many ways, Moscow still sees Central Asia through the lens of the Soviet Union, and it struggles to redefine Russian relations with the region. Alexey Malashenko offers a comprehensive analysis of Russian policies and prospects in Central Asia. It is clear that Russian policy in the former Soviet space is entering uncharted territory. But does the ruling establishment understand the fundamental shifts under way? It is time for Moscow to rethink its approach to Central Asia.Printed Pages: 308. 105044

History of Anthropology
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789351252634; Hardcover; New; New; 
Haddon’s History of Anthropology (1910) has been the first effort of this kind to give an outline of the developments in the discipline up to that period. The 1934 edition, which has been followed here was completely revised by Haddon. For Haddon, the scope of anthropology is spread in three major subdivisions: Human Biology, Cultural Anthropology (Ethnology) and Ethnography. This book has these three main sections which are again distributed into altogether nine chapters. The sections or parts deal with nature and definition of anthropology, voyagers and philosophers, professionalization and history from within the discipline. This celebrated and pioneering work of anthropology is being published for greater readership of the present generations to keep them abreast of the very foundational ideas in the discipline of anthropology. The book brings before us many of the information that are useful even today. Printed Pages: 145. 112358

1242 Alfred E. Eckes, Jr. And Thomas W. Zeiler
Globalization and the American Century
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2003; 0521009065; Paperback; New; 
Using globalization as a unifying theme, Eckes and Zeiler offer a bold new approach to American history and diplomacy in the twentieth century. The American Century of global leadership, they show, resulted both from innovations and ideas. Revolutionary improvements in technology (especially satellite communications and jet transportation) combined with the leadership elite’s enthusiasm for de-regulation of markets and free trade to fuel American-style globalization. Zeiler and Eckes show this formula helped the nation rise to economic power after the Spanish-American War, and win both world wars and the Cold War. In the decade after the end of the Cold War, America’s power and cultural influence soared as business and financial interests pursued the long-term quest for global markets. But the tragic events of September 2001 and the growing volatility of global finance raised questions about whether the era of American-led globalization was sustainable, or vulnerable to catastrophic collapse. Contents 1. Americanizing Britain’s world, 1898–1913; 2. Globalization in war and peace, 1914–1920; 3. Exporting the American dream, 1921–1929; 4. Business busted, diplomacy destroyed, 1929–1939; 5.

Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Private Limited/Research India Press; New Delhi, India; 8120808010; Hardcover; New; New; 
A History of Western Tibet is based on foreign and western Tibetan sources of information. The western Tibetan sources of information are records on stones and on paper.

The readers will find A History of Western Tibet interesting which is the outcome of scholarly enterprise and research as much as of familiarity with the country and the people. The book is profusely illustrated, and illustrations and maps vis-a-vis the text make the readers move apace with the different phases of the history of the Western Tibet. Printed Pages: 983. 110014

To get rid of organised religion?s stuffiness and sterility and connect to simple, large sections of eastern as well as western societies, are turning to occult philosophy.

Confronting Iran
Hurst & Company; London, UK; 1850658099; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Islamic Republic of Iran's ongoing nuclear programme has provoked a major and menacing crisis in its realtions with the US and other Western powers. Ali Ansari argues that crisis is a symptom of broader, long-term fissures in US-Iranian realtions, and in Confronting Iran he seeks to disentangle the myths that are at the bottom of this gulf in understanding, whihc is compounded by the nature of the states, their foreign policy establishments and the fraught history of their relations since the 1979 revolution. Ansari reviews the historical antecedents of the crisis, in particular US-Iranian realtions since 9/11 and attempts by the EU to broker a settlement acceptable to all parties. He argues that the European position has been dictated as much by its relations with the US in the wake of the invasion of Iraq as by domestic politics in Iran, and he concludes by assessing the election of Mahmud Ahmadinejad as President and its likely impact on the view from Tehran and Washington. This account of a potential flashpoint in realtions between the Muslim world and the West could not be more timely. Contents Introduction 1. Imperial Hubris 2. 1953 3. 1979 4.

Lives of Early Buddhist Nuns: Biographies as History
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 019945907X; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Based on new translations of Pali texts and rare sources, Lives of Early Buddhist Nuns analyses the portrayal of women in the Pali canon and commentaries. Focusing on the differences between canonical and commentarial literature, the author goes beyond the practice of using the commentaries to merely enhance the understanding of the Pali canon; she emphasizes the differing social and historical milieus out of which these genres of literature were born. Assessing each genre on its own terms, the work demonstrates that the Pali canon, contrary to how it has been presented previously, is more favourable to women. The first part of the volume contains biographies of the six best-known Buddhist nuns who were considered to have been direct disciples of the Buddha. These biographies throw light on gender relations as they evolved in the early centuries of Buddhism in India. The life stories also serve as the foundation for discussion of Buddhist women in the second part. From notions of beauty and adornment to family, class, and marriage, various themes in the biographies are explored in this work, and through this exploration the changing form of Buddhism in early India is captured.

Simla Village Tales
Pilgrims Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2004; 817769118X; Reprint; Paperback; New; New; 5.5 x 8.5 Inches 
One Cannot sojourn for long in the East without hearing strange stories, all of which are vouched for by the natives. Most would make one's blood run cold, but they are irresistibly fascinating. Filled with pathos but almost always showing that every cloud has its silver lining, these tales carry the reader into the mythical past that was India. The majority of these tales have the raw transparency of folk art, whilst others are fashioned with uncommon sophistication. Many of the stories have been passed down by word of mouth. Long before the radio and television ever existed, People spend hours around fires telling stories for entertainment. First published in 1906, Simla Village Tales captivates and preserves some of the old folk tales of a long gone era. This new version of these same stories will show that little of their underlying meaning and significance has changed. Printed Pages: 146. 002353

Ganesa: A Monograph on the Elephant-Faced God: with an introduction by Alfred Foucher
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1992; 81-215-0377-X; Reprint; Cloth; New; New; 22 Cms x 29 Cms 
The most universally adored of all the Hindu gods, Ganesa, the 'Lord of the Ganas' also occupies a pride of place among the gods of the Hindu pantheon. It was because of his popularity as a magnificent god that he was known by the various epithets Vinayaka, Vighnesvara, Siddhidata, Heramba, etc., which stress his benevolent nature and his other names viz., Vakra-tunda, Ekadanta, Akhu-ratha, Lambodara, Gajanana, etc. connote his unusual physical and other attributes. In her illuminating study, Ganesa, A Monograph on the Elephant-faced God, Alice Getty has covered not only the various iconographical features of this god, but has marshalled all the available evidence and shown how the cult of Ganapati originated and spread into not only the various parts of India but into foreign lands as well. The book is divided into eight chapters besides an Introduction by Alfred Foucher. The first four chapters deal respectively with the Origin of Ganesa and Ganesa in Indian literature, Ganesa in Iconography from the Hindu texts and images, Ganesa in Hindu sculpture and paintings and Ganesa in Buddhism. The remaining four chapters deal with Ganesa in the countries neighbouring India such as Burma, Siam, Indo-China, Java, Borneo, China and Japan. In this important work of scholarship and research, Alice Getty has collected a mass of carefully arranged information on Ganesa. This monograph is, therefore, indispensable as a work of reference for the scholars interested in Indian iconography and religion. Carefully selected illustrations, including text-figures, colour and half-tone plates, bibliography, texts of Sanskrit, Tibetan and Japanese references glossary and index add to the usefulness of the volume. Printed Pages: 131 with 8 text illustrations, 105 halftone and 2 four-colour illustrations. 032057

Becoming Asia: Change and Continuity in Asian International Relations Since World War II
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789382264101; Hardcover; New; New; 
At the conclusion of World War II Asia was hardly more than a geographic expression. Yet today we recognize Asia as a vibrant and assertive region fully transformed from the vulnerable nation-states that emerged following the Second World War. The transformation was by no means an inevitable one but the product of two key themes that have dominated Asia’s international relations since 1945 – the competition between the United States and the Soviet Union to enlist the region’s states as assets in the Cold War and the struggle of nationalistic Asian leaders to develop the domestic support to maintain power and independence in a dangerous international context. Becoming Asia provides a comprehensive systemic account of how these themes played out in Asian affairs during the postwar years covering not only East Asia but South and Central Asia as well. In addition to exploring the interplay between nationalism and Cold War bipolarity during the first postwar decades authors Alice Lyman Miller and Richard Wich chart the rise of largely export-led economies that are increasingly making the region the global center of gravity and document efforts in the ongoing search for regional integration.Printed Pages: 330. 101467

The Oxford Dictionary of Musical Works
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0198610203; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
Anyone who listens to or plays classical music often wants to put the pieces they encounter in context - to check information ranging from who wrote the piece, or the date of its first performance, to how it acquired its title, or whether it was commissioned for a specific person or occasion. General dictionaries of music only cover a limited number of musical works, and include very little detail. The new Oxford Dictionary of Musical Works provides short articles on over 1750 musical works from earliest times to the present day, providing a comprehensive but handy reference. Entries encompass a broad spectrum of genres - from opera, ballet, choral and vocal music, orchestral, chamber and instrumental pieces, to nicknamed works, collections, national anthems, hymn tunes, and traditional melodies. Each entry outlines the genre to which the piece belongs; the librettist or author of the text, including any literary source; the number of acts or movements; the scoring - including details of the instrumentalists and vocalists needed to perform the piece; how it came to be commissioned; the place and date of its first performance; any subsequent arrangements or revisions; and any additional important or entertaining information.

Standing in the Margins: Representation and Electoral Reservation in India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195672143; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
The Indian Constitution has made special provisions for the electoral representation of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, members of social groups seen to be at the lowest rungs of socio-economic and ritual hierarchy. The reservation of a number of constituencies from which only they can contest elections is intended to place these otherwise marginalized groups in the highest levels of elected government. This book examines the principles and practice of this mode of group representation, both in the historical context in which it was introduced and the current dynamics of the system of electoral politics. It looks at the motivation behind such measures and attempts an assessment of its impact on the political system and the structure of socio-economic inequality. By analysing unique survey data and the social and institutional contexts in which reservation operates in India, Alistair McMillan shows how the SCs/STs continue to be discriminated against in socio-economic d evelopment and are also subjected to political manipulation by the process through which reserved constituencies are allotted. He argues that while electroral reservation has little impact on the voting patterns of SCs/STs, it exerts a negative influence on participation in general. The system does provide symbolic representation, but evidence for any real substantive benefit is limited. Erudite and comprehensive, this volume will be of immense interest to scholars and students of politics, sociology, history, and Dalit studies. It will also appeal to NGOs, journalists, and policy-makers. Printed Pages: 350 with numerous tables and 2 maps. 013589

The Digha Nikaya or the Digha Samgaha is regarded as the first Book of the Sutta Pitaka. The Digha Nikaya which is a collection of longer Suttas or discourses deals with various subjects of Buddhism. It is divided into three sections which are Srlakkhandha, Mahavagga and Patheya or Patikavagga. It has thirty four Suttas, each of which deals fully with one or several points of Buddhist Doctrine.

The third volume starts with Patika Sutta and ends with the Dasuttara Sutta (24-34).

Lavish, full-colour images of her works of over two decades allow readers to engage with the art she represents, rounding out the portrait of the artist with international sensibilities.

Kalpaz Publications/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789351281245; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
As developing nations across the globe struggle to find effective means of reaching out to their hungry , they need knowledge about alternative ways of addressing this issue. It is useful to know how other nations are addressing this problem and the level of success achieved. More cost effective and efficient systems need to be looked into. It is difficult to find all the relevant information about food security schemes in one place. It is even more difficult to find such information about many nations in just one source. This book is prepared as a reference book for the stake holders interested in the policy analysis of food security schemes. Each chapter gives relevant food security indicators for that nation, the economic history and its developmental context, and the past as well as current food security schemes. Simple statistical tools like mean and standard deviation, regression and paired t test are used to interpret the data., About The Author:- Alka Parikh, PhD in Development Economics from Cornell University , USA, is working as an Associate Professor at D.A. Institute of Information and Communication T echnology (DA-IICT).

The Tale Retold: Selected Stories
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2009; 014306651X; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
The Tale Retold is as much about story-telling as it is about finding stories in situations where they may not easily be found. The title story examines with great sympathy the equations between a mother who feels helpless and hopeful in turns, a child who slowly comes to terms with his disability and a society which values ‘soundness’ above all and makes no space for the differently abled. ‘In Quest of a Story’ follows a middle-aged, retired man on his obsessive pursuit of a writer in the hope that he will become a subject of her narrative. A mother writes ‘A Letter to Mrs D’ Souza’, the principal of her daughter’s school, in which she tries to negotiate some space for herself in a society where anything less than complete devotion to one’s children is construed as culpable neglect. Alka Saraogi understands the undercurrents of the human mind and engages easily with the inner worlds of her characters. Her ability to look for the extraordinary within the ordinary and to elegantly shatter seemingly permanent stereotypes makes The Tale Retold an unforgettable collection. Printed Pages: 168. 030354

Andal and Akka Mahadevi: Feminity to Divinity
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8124607168; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Bhakti poetry is an amazing amalgamation of art, music, literature, philosophy, politics, soteriology and mysticism. Andal and Akka Mahadevi: Feminity to Divinity reflects this amalgamation in letter and spirit. Two medieval women, Andal, a ninth-century A’lvar saint-poetess from Tamil Srivaishnavite tradition, and Akka Mahadevi, a twelfth-century Kannada saint-poetess from Virashaivite tradition, with their poetic renderings and life, got elevated to a stature beyond that of saints. This book deals with three major aspects. One, understanding of bhakti in its historical, philosophical and social perspectives. It thus delves on the idea and phenomenon of bhakti, the ancient religions and the evolution of bhakti tradition in south India. Two, it portrays the life of poet-saints Andal and Akka Mahadevi and their chosen path of bhakti. Their poetic renderings — Tiruppavai and Nachiar Tirumo’li of Andal, and vacanas of Akka Mahadevi — have found merit in rituals, theatre, cinema, dance, painting and other arts. The textual analysis of their poetry is done from religious, literary and socio-political angles. Three, it reflects on how the works of these saints have percolated down to the living patterns in modern India; rather it is a dedication to the living traditions in bhakti. This volume also helps to extricate bhakti experience from its mystical aura and make it more accessible to our perceptive faculties. Thus it enthuses the spirit of anyone, be an artist, a poet, a philosopher, or a scholar.Printed Pages: 295. 100405

1299 Alladi Uma, K. Suneetha Rani & D. Murali Manohar (Eds)
English in the Dalit Context
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125055193; Hardcover; New; New; 
Language does not confine itself to communication alone. It gets closely connected with politics, be it cultural, identity, or international politics. This becomes all the more true in the case of languages that were imported and imposed by colonial powers, and admired and followed by the colonised as the rulers’ language. English in the Dalit Context is set against this backdrop of the politics surrounding English in India. The volume, a collection of 15 essays, brings to the fore a multiplicity of views expressed by Dalit intellectuals and activists on ‘English’ in all its different senses. It also includes essays by non-Dalit scholars who have been long involved with questions of colonial modernity and of the English language in the Dalit context.Printed Pages:192. 101799

1300 Alladi Uma, K. Suneetha Rani & D. Murali Manohar (Eds)
English in the Dalit Context
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2017; 8125064222; First Edition; Softcover; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Language does not confine itself to communication alone. It gets closely connected with politics, be it cultural, identity, or international politics. This becomes all the more true in the case of languages that were imported and imposed by colonial powers, and admired and followed by the colonised as the rulers’ language. In India, English has always been an issue of political discourse, be it in pre-independent, postcolonial or globalised India. For the privileged class, English is either a language of achievement or one choice among many other languages. However, for disadvantaged and marginalised Dalits, mastering English promises liberation. English in the Dalit Context is set against this backdrop of the politics surrounding English in India. The volume, a collection of 15 essays, brings to the fore a multiplicity of views expressed by Dalit intellectuals and activists on ‘English’ in all its different senses. It also includes essays by non-Dalit scholars who have been long involved with questions of colonial modernity and of the English language in the Dalit context. The essays deal with issues of English pedagogy, such as English as one of the languages or subjects, English as medium of instruction, entry of Dalit literature into English departments in colleges and universities, and the politics of the English language as a stepping-stone to success in an increasingly globalised world, where market culture promises unlimited opportunities. This important and essential reading will be invaluable for students and scholars of English and caste and Dalit Studies. Printed Pages: 182. 112287
